Why I walk

Our son was born at 24 weeks 4 days with a weight of 1 lb. 11 oz. He was in the NICU at Valley Medical Center for 102 days and came home a week before his due date. He is now a healthy 7.5 year old. He's on track and we have truly been blessed with a little miracle. This is why I have decided to walk. I've joined March for Babies because the March of Dimes champions the needs of moms and babies in our community and across the nation. The money we raise for March for Babies will help: ~ support all-important research offering preventions and solutions for babies born too soon or with birth defects ~ educate women on things they can do to increase their chances of having a healthy baby ~ provide comfort and information to families with a newborn in intensive care ~ push for newborn screening and health insurance for all pregnant women and children Please help by donating today! It's easy, safe and secure - just click to make your donation. I'm also hoping to join a team so please let me know if you have room. This is my first year and I'm really excited to participate in this walk. one day... all babies will be born healthy today... too many moms and families know the heartbreak of having a baby born fighting to survive.

Your gift matters

Funds raised in March for Babies support research and programs that help moms have full-term pregnancies and babies begin healthy lives. And they will be used to bring comfort and information to families with a baby in newborn intensive care.

Thank you for walking!
